Non-smoking grumbler fired

The boss of a computer firm in North Germany has fired three of his employees because they are non-smoker and insisted in having a smoke-free working place. They delivered good work results, says the boss, but he simply doesn’t need grumbler in his company. People there work close together due to limited space ( sounds familiar ). “We have a lot of phone calls”, said the boss, “and this works best with having a cigarette.”

Wow, and I always thought that smokers are having a hard time in these days. As you probably have heard meanwhile they are not allowed anymore in Germany to smoke in a restaurant or only if there is a designated room for smokers. 

I wonder how this story continues, whether it will be taken to labor court and what the outcome will be then.
